Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

red skin potato salad

another one of my favorite summer potato salads is made with red skin potatoes.  early in the day i boil a small quantity of potatoes with their skins on after a good scrub in the sink.  then, i chill the potatoes until very cold for several hours.

at preparation time, i chop the celery and green onion into small pieces.  according to preference, chopped green or red pepper could be added.  next, i chop the potatoes into cubes with skins left on.  the dressing is absolutely delicious. mix one tablespoon of low fat mayonnaise with one tablespoon of Dijon mustard.  add salt to taste, and then start with 1/4 cup of light olive oil and mix in red wine vinegar to taste, always keeping the vinegar ratio much smaller than the olive oil.  combine all ingredients.  stir and taste.  cover and refrigerate.
